    I am attempting to use an hr21-700 in my rv w a tracview single lnb dish. I have used it successfully in this config in the past but for some reason it is flaking out now. I can get the dish to manually lock on the 101 but only the upper transponders register a signal. I've reset the tracview and the receiver. No joy.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Specifically, which transponders are showing signal? Sounds like your dish is aimed at the wrong satellite.

    Excellent.

    So there is no way to select a specific satellite. Theoretically, it tracks from east to west beginning at the first e* then eventually to the 101. But it's pretty much a crap shoot as far as I can tell. If anyone has any experience w this device, I would really appreciate any suggestions.
